She had just told him that her cousin was at home with a small baby in a freezing house with a power cut and he failed to recognize her anxiety. He was, in fact, quite flippant in his reply when she asked if there was anything else that she could do. I would have expected him to have offered to try to get in touch with someone for her and speed things up even if, in reality, he knew that this would not be possible.</p><p>Sarah Thorman1/23/1312:00:00227Charlotte6.047.796There was nothing special about this call, the agent gave the customer what information she had to hand in a pleasant frills attached.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoYes6Yes6Yes566666666Their procedures-As one of the crowd666666No-656676766756This was a fairly standard call, the agent dealt with the inquiry in a processed no nonsense sort of way, i felt she was a bit distant almost preoccupied until towards the end of the call when she said she was working all night and said she would ring the customer back with any updates.</p><p>Wendy Court1/23/1311:30:00223Lewis6.938.57I found the welcome professional, but a little corporate. I found the agent was helpful and honest with his information. He made me feel that he was concerned for me as a customer, by offering to do what another department would normally do. I was pleased with the outcome as the agent had taken my telephone number in case the E Mail did not get through, this as a whole made me feel I was important to them.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoYes6Yes6No-67878776Me-A customer787878No-666777777767I felt I had been served well, with the information I needed and the agent taking my needs and feelings into account. I left with more than I had expected which made the call a success for me, through the agents thoughtfulness.</p><p>Wendy Court1/23/1311:50:00124Andy6.258.56The agent had an upbeat welcome, gave me good information, explained exactly what was happening, but I felt he was not concerned for me particularly , which made me feel I was one of the crowd . I felt I was more just part of his process, and felt he did not really understand my feelings to the situation.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoYes6Yes6No-76767666Their procedures-A customer676777No-666666666666I felt the agent was honest with me, and he felt he was doing a good job, however, it did feel impersonal and somewhat processed. I did leave with the information I needed, but with little sympathy for the situation.</p><p>Wendy Court1/23/1312:08:00425lee6.327.796I felt the agent was quite unresponsive to me, as when I told him of the problem he took a long time to reply as he was focused on his computer. It felt that he was quite detached from me. However, he did eventually respond with helpful information, and did tell me not to worry at the end. I did feel to much on my own through a lot of the call, but by the end had some more faith in him.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoNo6Yes6No-66767665Their computer system-A customer667777No-666767667766I felt through most of the call that agent was not focused on my emotional needs. By the end I did feel some reassurance from him, and felt some gratitude that he was being helpful, because he connected with me once he had left his computer and looked up to notice my distress.</p><p>Wendy Court1/23/131:10:00238Kevin6.827.797I felt the agent connected well with me from the start, and was helpful and honest in his manner towards me. I felt I was important to him, by his warmth and somewhat personal approach.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoYes6Yes6Yes667877776Me-An individual person777787No-667677677777I felt the agent made me feel important to them. I felt the company cared about me, and that although they could not change things a warmth and sense of humour made it feel better.</p><p>Wendy Court1/23/131:20:00539Kate7.048.57I felt the initial welcome quite neutral in manner, so not too welcoming, however, I found the agent built a good rapport with me, and was honest and very helpful with her information. I was reassured and impressed that she offered to text me to let me know what was going on.Overall, I felt that a good job was being done for me, and the company cared.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoYes6Yes6No-67878676Me-A customer788888No-766777777777I felt , after the initial welcome, that the agent listened and responded to my needs, in a helpful and honest manner. I felt she was focused on me and I felt reassured by her professional and clear dealings with me.</p><p>Wendy Court1/23/132:00:00640Libby6.147.796I felt the agent was professional and competent, but in a removed and unemotional manner. I had the information I would need, and felt satisfied with it. I felt the agent treated me in an impersonal way, little real connection, rather as a procedure.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoNo6Yes6No-56667666Their procedures-A customer677777No-665666666756I felt the emotional detachment took away from the agents professional manner. I felt I was never quite reached by her, and the focus was entirely on her processes. She was honest and competent in a dispassionate way.</p><p>Sarah Thorman1/23/1312:00:00428Carl6.647.797The agent was pleasant and helpful, he asked the customer very relevant questions to establish what the problem was....he said sorry and suggested they send an engineer out.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoYes6Yes7Yes667777777Their procedures-A customer677767No-766676767767The agent was both helpful and polite, he tried hard to establish why there was no electricity, he offered an explanation as to why we may have lost the electricity giving a couple of reasons. He was helpful in offering to send out an engineer and offered an apology which was nice.</p><p>Sarah Thorman1/23/1312:00:0032Maralyn6.57.797This was a pleasant call, the agent was polite and gave the customer good information and put his mind at rest that the lack of electricity would be looked into.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoYes6Yes6Yes667766666Their procedures-A customer677777No-667676776767I felt this was quite a good call, the agent was polite and genuinely wanted to help the customer, she apologised and put the customers mind at rest that the electricity would be restored. At times her manner was a bit processed and jobs worth but her intention was to do a good job.</p><p>Sarah Thorman1/23/1312:00:0033Andy6.57.797The agent was polite and helpful, he was honest about when he felt the electricity would be restored even through it was not what the agent wanted to hear.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoYes6Yes6Yes676767776Their procedures-A customer676767No-667676766767The agent was polite and helpful, he gave the customer clear concise information regarding the lack of electricity in his area even through this was not what the customer wanted to hear.</p><p>Sarah Thorman1/23/1312:00:0074Scot6.147.796The agent was pleasant with the intent to provide a good service however i felt he didn\'t always connect with the customer, the interaction did at times feel a bit disjointed.1NoYesNoYesYesYesYesYesNoYes6Yes6Yes666767666Their procedures-A customer666666No-666666766766The agent was honest and helpful, the problem had not been reported via the council so the agent was only able to advise the customer rather than look into resolving the proble...</p></li></ul>
